Cheryl Hoard

Cheryl Hoard passed away in May of 2015. She will be missed so much! I am honored to have worked with her.


“I truly believe that every little thing has an impact on the whole. Many little things can add up to something quite significant. I tend to think in terms of ‘Let it begin with me’. Creating Cheryl’s Herbs has been an opportunity for me to help people and the earth as well. I know you cannot change other people; you can only be an example. Here at Cheryl’s Herbs we live this philosophy. We use these products everyday and are delighted to provide alternatives to the numerous synthetic products that surround us.”

Cheryl has twice been president of the National Association for Holistic Aromatherapy (NAHA). She has been the aromatherapy consultant for Time Life Books, served as a member of the Botanicals Workgroup of the Complementary Health Committee for the BJC Health System, lectures for Washington University Medical School, St. Louis University Medical School, St. Louis College of Pharmacy, St. Louis Community College, Meramec and Missouri Botanical Garden. She has studied herbalism and aromatherapy since 1976.

She spent 11 years in Asia as Principal French Horn of the Hong Kong Philharmonic Orchestra and has studied natural healing with international practitioners of the herbal arts. She now plays frequently with the St. Louis Symphony and many other local groups.

Since 1991 she has been owner of Cheryl’s Herbs, America’s Favorite Herb Shop, an international wholesale/retail/mail order supplier of over 5000 highest quality herbal & aromatherapy products. The goal at Cheryl’s Herbs is to make it easier and more convenient for you to have a more natural and healthy lifestyle.
